In January of 2013, First Class Renovations began a complete renovation of our entire house. The planned project was to gut our existing kitchen and bathroom on the main floor, remove a wall between a living room and bedroom, to re-finish all the existing hardwood floors. And also to completely gut the basement down to the foundation, create a new floor plan and re-build into a large family room, bathroom, bedroom and office space. The proposed timeline was 2 1/2 months.
My husband and I were very nervous about beginning such a large renovation, especially with all the horror stories you hear about contractors and tradesmen. But from the onset of the project, Greg and his team were a pleasure to work with. The work began right on time and that schedule was maintained throughout the entire renovation. Any problems that arose during the process were dealt with quickly and completely to our satisfaction. Greg was easy to get a hold of, either answering calls directly or returning messages asap.
We were also very impressed with the quality of the work. From the cleanliness of our house during the reno, to the finishing touches when it was all said and done, each trades person put care into their work. The carpenter, Brian, did a excellent job building custom closets for us in the master bedroom. Our friends and family have been completely shocked when they’ve seen our transformed house and consistently comment on how amazing it looks.
In the end, our renovation was completed exactly on time, and on budget! We’re looking forward to working with First Class Renovations again in the future, but we’d have to move to do that, and our house is now so perfect, we never want to leave!
